Phaedra Parks officially divorced husband Apollo Nida in 2016, two years after he began his federal prison stint on wire and bank fraud charges. And in the years since, she’s been mingling like nobody’s business. Below are five men “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has dated — or rumored to have dated—- since splitting from Nida.
Ever the flirty pair, Parks and actor Shemar Moore set tongues wagging when they got cozy on “Watch What Happens Live” in 2016 — even going so far as to share a kiss. Moore denied they were an item the next year. Yet by November 2018, rumors swirled again when Parks posted a photo kissing Moore’s cheek with the caption, “The look on #bae face when you tell him tonight is your night.”
Back when she was an “RHOA” peach holder, Parks was rumored to be cheating on Nida with a man known as Mr. Chocolate, who was alleged to be Pastor Jamal Bryant. Nida had spread the rumor in 2014 on the Bravo series, but Parks has always maintained they were not an item. However, “The Real Housewives of Potomac” star Gizelle Bryant has said that while her ex-husband-turned-boyfriend says they never dated, Parks “said yes to her friends” about their supposed courtship.
Parks was first spotted with Tone Kapone on New Year’s Eve 2018, and the Chicago-based radio and TV personality confirmed their romance in January 2019. They stayed together through the spring, but by June they removed each other’s photos from their respective Instagram pages. And the next month, Parks said herself that she “dated a guy and that didn’t quite work out.”
In December 2016, Parks was linked to former “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” star Tim Norman. The Daily Mail reported they met when Parks was in St. Louis for a conference and stopped by Sweetie Pies Upper Crust eatery for a bite to eat. When they broke up is not clear, but neither ever appeared on the other’s respective reality shows.
Laughing and holding hands in Santa Monica, California, in July 2019, Parks was snapped on a lunch date with Medina Islam. “The Haves and Have Nots” actor and the Atlanta-based attorney met on the elite dating app Raya, and Parks later made it Instagram official in September 2019. It seems things are getting so serious that they’re rumored to be joining “Marriage Boot Camp,” as Parks allegedly is considering moving to California to be closer to Islam.
